Battle in the Temple

‘What luck’ thought the Elf, who had never expected the sorceror to be so close. She grabbed the Rahib with her free hand, attempting to restrain him before he cast a spell. “Not a word!” she practically yelled, shoving her dagger towards his face.

Back up in the temple, the fight against the Rahib’s panthers continued.

“Are you some sort of artilleryman all of a sudden? Dice it with your axe!” Maruc chirped wildly behind the dwarf, with all of his panic reverbrating in his words.

The cleric grimmaced as the beast swung on his shield, he offered a swift prayer of thanks to Halav and brought his flail down in a stunning blow toward its head.

At the urging of the mage, Feldard grimaced but the human was right, who was he fooling—he wasn’t made for long distance battle. He passed back his crossbow to Miklos and pulled his axe free and strode into the room looking meet the large cat, yet still part of his attention kept watching the statue. “Rogue, leave the cat to me.. follow the Elf!”

The panther’s claws scratched into the cleric, striking with blinding speed past Maruc’s shield. He could get in little offense against the thing as he tried to keep his shield in between himself and the black beast. With its attention focused on Maruc, the dwarf was able to catch the panther off guard, sinking his axe into the thing’s hindquarters. It let out a painful yelp which caused its companion to raise its head from his feasting on the unfortunate Siswa who had been torn into pieces. It then remembered its masters order. KILL! So, putting an end to elvish snack time, the panther charged across the room to begin a delectable dwarven dinner.

The Rahib quickly recovered his balance and dodged her attack. From his black Siswa robes, his hand emerged, brandishing an impressive-looking mace. Saeth could also see that the man was wearing chain mail beneath the elven cloth. Not at all the equipment customarily carried by a mage.

Nicolai followed Saeth as quickly as he could. As was his modus operandi, he attempted move behind the Rahib, but in the close quarters beneath the trap door hatch, there was little room to maneuver. It appeared the two were in for a straight-up melee with their chief adversary.

  1. Maruc is down 6 hp = 11/17

  2. Maruc (Clr 4)

    The pain the gouge didn’t register to the young priest as a mixture of adrenalin and endorphines dampened the effects. His silent yelp lost in the aura of silence that encircled him. He wildly wanked his shield round trying to compensate for the beasts unexpected speed and furosity. It was proving difficult to get a clear blow in and he was considering backing toward the door to get a better defensive position when the pressure on his shield ceased. He lowed his shield a fraction and saw Feldard had come to aid him.

    Maruc nodded his thanks and taking the opportunity as the panther turned away to swing his flail round in a low arc toward its flank.

  3. Miklos (Mu 3)

    Flanking Feldard the mage, using the staff like a spear to keep some distance, tried to disuade the second panther from attacking Feldard straight away. He knew that the Dwarf would be angry with him for trying this but it might buy him a few valuable moments to finish off the first one before turning to face the new threat.

  4. Feldard (Dwf 3)

    Feldard being watchful, kept his attention moving… injured cat, pouncing cat, statue… He swung his axe up and around to meet the charge of the attacking uninjured cat. Hopefully, the hindquarter injury would slow up the other cat enough that Maruc could better deal with it. The ferocity of the cats attack was impressive as was it’s speed and the dwarf was hard pressed to hold his own.

  5. Hasan (E2)

    As the melee continued, a dark-hooded head poked up from the small stairway leading to the tiny room. Eyes widening, the Siswa emerged and swiftly drew his scimitar. Closing the gap between himself and the combatants with startlingly speed. Silently, ferociously, he raised his sword and lashed out.

    He swung at the Rahib!

  6. Saeth Tegau

    Saeth stepped forward to grapple the spellcaster again, but stepped back as the new combatant entered the fray. Her eyes opened wide as she realized his target; who’s side was he on? She threw the dagger she still gripped in her off-hand at the Rahib, and drew her blade, ready to fend off either or both of them as necessary.
